Wednesday’s baseball summaries

 

AMERICAN

Royals 4, Twins 0

Jason Vargas threw seven scoreless innings, Raul Ibanez homered in his second game for Kansas City and the Royals beat Minnesota in Minneapolis. Vargas allowed four singles and two walks while striking out five, allowing only two runners from a diluted Twins lineup to reach second base. Mike Moustakas and Jarrod Dyson hit RBI singles in the second inning against Kevin Correia. With Joe Mauer missing, placed on the disabled list before the game because of a strained muscle on his right side, the Twins didn’t cause Vargas any trouble.

Tyson Ross threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout and Rene Rivera hit a three-run single off league ERA leader Johnny Cueto as San Diego beat visiting Cincinnati.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the first, Rivera hit a blooper to the gap that hit off the heel of the glove of diving center fielder Billy Hamilton to give San Diego a 3-0 lead.

Nationals 4, Rockies 3

After a replay review, Ian Desmond’s solo homer provided the go-ahead run and Washington rallied from a three-run deficit for a home win over Colorado, sweeping the three-game series. Jayson Werth also homered for Washington. Right-hander Matt Belisle came on to face Desmond with one out in the seventh. Desmond’s hit appeared to bounce off the top of the wall in right center, then off the railing in front of the first row and onto the field.

INTERLEAGUE

Blue Jays 7, Brewers 4

Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run, walk-off home run in the ninth inning and Toronto beat visiting Milwaukee. Jose Bautista and Juan Francisco also connected for the Blue Jays. Facing Will Smith, Jose Reyes led off the ninth with a double that left fielder Elian Herrera dove for but couldn’t handle. Melky Cabrera was intentionally walked and Brandon Kintzler came on to face Anthony Gose, who failed to advance the runners with a bunt when Reyes was forced at third. Darin Mastroianni struck out but Encarnacion ended it with a drive into the second deck in left, his 26th.
